Paradox Entertainment LLC (1999 – 2002)

Club X @ 715 Harrison (1998 – 2000)

Starting out in the club scene in 1998 as a promoter at San Francisco’s club X, the main reason why Rooz became dj was so that he could play the music that he wanted to hear at his own events. “I knew exactly what the club heads wanted to hear, what made them move and what made them jump”. Rooz believed that this way he wouldn’t have to try so hard to find the right dj that could produce the right vibe. In 1999 Rooz and Misha Vladimirsky partnered up to and started Paradox Entertainment. Paradox’s success lead to three new events and Rooz now had four residencies: Detour @ the LimeLite, a rockin Tuesday night event that drew a crowd of 1000 clubbers every night, Glow Sunday nights @ the LimeLite in MV. And the Infamous Friday night monthly underground party Re-Cycle @ Space 550 in SF, where thousands gathered to hear some of worlds most famous dj’s like Armand Van Heldon, Keoki, Donald Glaude and Hippe & Halo perform. By 2003 Rooz took his underground style of progressive & tech house to another level and had played at almost all SF night clubs. At that time he had residencies at “Loud” Saturday nights @ Ruby Skye and Headlining in the house room at Spundae’s world famous weekly Friday event “Sonic” @ 1015 Folsom. After the the End of Paradox, Rooz joined forces with the world famous promoters, Spundae. Taking SF by storm Spundae continued to flourish as SF’s number 1 nightclub experience. With his new home Rooz continued to throw events and rock crowds of over a thousand playing at events with some of worlds most famous dj’s and producers like Sasha, Tiesto, Seb Fontaine, Steve Lawler, BT, Ferry Corsten, Derrick Carter, Nick Warren, Max Graham, and more…

Rooz’s unique style of mixing deep celestial progressive with tribal/tech and “Nu Skool” breaks always brings fresh new sounds to music lovers all over the world. His sets are unique and the experience is memorable. Today Rooz has partnered up with Back2Basics-sf Founder to create “R-Squared”, at tag team collaboration of retro-prog and funky tribal. With his newest success Rooz is throwing “Retro-Drum” with SF’s only ongoing electro tech house party @ Anu.

With new residency at Bambuddha Lounge and frequent visits to Mezzanine and 1015, life seems to move smoothly to sound of music.

Being a part of Spundae from 2002 to 2006, Rooz got spin with DJ’s such as Sasha, Tiesto, Nick Warren, Seb Fontaine, BT and more. He helped Spundae make a big statement in San Francisco in 2005 and helped them win the “Best US Club” award at the International Dance Music Awards (IDMA) at WMC in 2005.

Since 2006 Rooz has started his latest residency at San Francisco’s most popular and trendiest club, supperclub.
